that was off the table what kind of leverage does john kerry have left to bring to bear on the assad government? >> the goal of this conference is to create that transitional government and got rid of assad. but assad is doing what he wants when he wants it. he feels he has impunity, to continue this cycle of violence, continue what opposition leaders are calling barrel bombs, bombs that destroy neighborhoods, indiscriminately killing civilians. he feels he can continue to do that, kerry is trying to convince assad some how that he doesn't have that impunity. he can't continue on this violent path. so given that military option is mostly off the table, what kerry is trying to do is isolate the assad regime. the rhetoric out of this conference is new from the united states. kerry is trying to say that assad is by himself. the assad regime, the family is by himself. this is not the syrians who protect him, this is the not syrians who may represent him. this is simply one family and their determination to stay in power. kerry's goal and the u.s. officials i talk to, their goal is to isolate him so

officials, when the israeli official described secretary of state john kerry as obsessive when it came to peace in the middle east. the white house called it offensive. >> there's no sign of a breakthrough in the ratest round of israeli palestine peace talks. the israeli defence minister says the process is a waste of time, blaming the u.s. secretary of state. according to israel's largest newspaper he said during a private conversation: >> as for the talks himself, he was just as displaysive. >> there's no allegations with the palestinians. americans are holding negotiations with us and in parallel with the palestinians. we are the only side to give anything. the release of murderers and the palestinians have given nothing. >> the obama administration was not pleased. >> we find the remarks. defence minister to be defensive and inappropriate, given all that the united states has done to support israel's security needs, and will continue to do. >> late on tuesday there was an apology to john kerry, saying he didn't mean to cause offense. the comment were made because he doesn't like a
, but they can give money. that is going on in kuwait. a donor conference. secretary of state john kerry and ban ki-moon is among those present, and bernard smith. what pledges have been made so far? >> well, there has been extraordinary numbers bandied around, not at least the 4 million syrians depended on u.n. aid in syria. the hopes of the conference, the kuwaities offered $500 million, first off the mark. the secretary of state john kerry offered $380 million on behalf of the u.s. government, and that already is getting close what was pledged a year ago, which was $1.5 billion. they are looking for that, $6.5 billion. >> one of the problems is that not all the money that is pledged actually gets paid. apparently 20% or 30% is outstanding from the last conference and this is worrying the u.n. chief ban ki-moon. >> well, i spoke to the u.n. representatives early on. they say now they have 80% of the money pledged last year. they are obviously knocking on doors and chasing up the outstanding funds, because it's all very well pledging the money, but the u.n. needs the cash in hand, to buy emerge
, difficult, and complicated process, something the u.s. secretary of state john kerry saying this is just the begin. what we really saw today was the deep rivalry between the syrian government and the saudi government, which is by extension the rivalry in the region, and to a certain extent the war in syria has become a proxy war. we hear the foreign minister say -- he didn't actually name saudi arabia, but he did hint and say the countries and delegates sitting here are responsible for the bloodshed in my country and the quote terrorism in my country. the saudi foreign minister saying that the iranian revolutionary guards need to withdraw from syria. so we need a consensus between these two regional powerhouses if we're going to see agreement on the house, but there's no doubt the international community wants this process to begin and reach some sort of outcome. it's not going to be an easy task. we saw the very best to discredit the opposition saying they don't have a political agenda for the future, and stressing time and time again that the war in syria is one against terrorism. on t
. a short time ago secretary of state john kerry was saying that bashar al-assad cannot remain the leader of syria. >> you cannot have peace. you cannot have stability. you cannot restore syria. you cannot save syria. from disintegration as long as bashar al-assad remains in power. >> those who are behind the acts of terrorists, terrorism in syria should choose between an arsonist or fireman. they cannot be both at the same time. >> and nick schifrin is in montreux, switzerland, tonight. tough talk from both sides of the controversy. >> reporter: yes, absolutely a chasm between both sides. but the goal from the u.s. point of view is the same, and that is to try to end the violence inside syria. ththey are convinced that the oy way to do that is to convince assad that he does not have impunity to keep on committing acts of violence. the first way is to threaten or use any kind of military action. president obama has made it very clear he has no intention to do that at least any time soon. diplomats here are trying to isolate syria diplomatically, trying to make it so difficult for assad to

to the u.s. secretary of state john kerry speaking about syria. he says he is not surprised at the comments coming from the syrian government. he says the assad government is trying to divert attention, and bashar al-assad is trying to seem like the protector of syria against terrorists. he says no one is going to be fooled. this comes after a letter leaked from the syrian foreign minister to the undersecretary ban ki-moon. and he said the united states has high [ technical difficulties ] >>> the government knows what it wants and has even made an offer to the opposition. the foreign minister has been weeking in moscow alongside his counterpart. he says his government supports the international peace conference known as geneva 2 and has given russia plans for a seas fire in aleppo. he also suggested that the regime would be interested in a prisoner swap if the rebels cooperate. let's go to our correspondent in istanbul at the opposition meeting, but first let's speak to paul brennan in moscow for us. and paul it sounds positive, offering the prisoner swap and a possib possible ceasefire tha

al-assad, secretary of state john kerry didn't back away from washington's longheld position that the aim of this conference was to carry out the so-called geneva 1 communique of 2012. >> bashar assad will not be part of that transition government. there is no way... no way possible in the imagination, that the man who has led the brutal response to his own people could regain the legitimacy to govern. one man and those who have supported him can no longer hold an entire nation and a region hostage. >> reporter: and the head of the opposition syrian national council insisted all parties must accept that stance, or there's no point in talking. >> ( translated ): any talk of assad staying in power in any form will be a derailment of geneva 1 path, so we insist that we are not in any position to discuss anything in the negotiations before these issues are decided upon within a specific time frame. >> reporter: the saudi arabian foreign minister, whose government funnels money and arms to the rebels, was equally firm. >> ( translated ): it is common sense that bashar al-assad wil

side, john kerry has proved to be a remarkable secretary of state. tackling very tough missions and accomplishing a series of things that people thought were impossible. for example, getting rid of syria's chemical weapons stockpile. something people considered impossible and the beginning of september. it will happen by the end of this month. one of the largest remaining stockpiles in the world of chemical weapons is being boxed up, shipped out of syria by february 1. and an amazing deal. john kerry is now in charge of a very able state department team. they have driven a very good bargain. i also but this is going to happen because that's what the other nations of the world wants. and you see a united nations that is united, a u.n. security council that is unity and purpose to history tells us when it is united, very few countries can but it. it's only when the security council splinters as it did, for example, in the run up to the 2003 iraq war when saddam hussein's splendor depicted within that you'll see sanctions used to resulted that's what is important to retain that uni
